A key feature of the STC model is its adaptability to local circumstances and resources. So, rather than offering a how-to narrative, the Guidebook presents a collection of documents used in the production of actual STCs – documents which need not be read in their entirety, but simply scanned in context with one another, to acquire an overview of the production process in a matter of minutes, not hours. That knowledge base can then be expanded through conversations with SUNYLI staff and with faculty who have participated in the planning of past STCs.
Sustainability is a core value at SUNYLI.
Sustainability is the engine that drives the institute’s Campus Based Leadership Development program (CBLD), offering an array of advanced training features including workshops, mentoring and developmental projects that grow the leadership skills of personnel while advancing the college’s strategic plan. With CBLD, colleges can design programs uniquely suited to their specific needs and acquire the skills to manage those programs themselves, for an unprecedented degree of local control at dramatically reduced costs. At the same time, CBLD enables the college's aspiring leaders to measure their progress - reliably and confidentially - including the growth of their own sustainability leadership competencies.
Want to learn more about sustainability? Here’s a great place to start: The Sustainability Leadership Institute’s Sustainability Leadership Model and Leadership Engagement Framework for Sustainability Planning and Action, featured elements in SUNYLI workshops. These documents are ideal complements to SUNYLI instruction because, like CBLD, they define sustainability not just as beliefs but as behaviors that you can emulate day-to-day in your own workplace.
